A year ago you didn't know,
you'd love freckles and a pixy nose.
But only our Maker, forever wise,
knew to put your favorite color in my eyes.
Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweights them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16 - 18
For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also the comfort of Christ overflows.
2 Corinthians 1:5
